More winners such as Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Rihanna and Fergie were revealed towards the end of the show that was cut short due to time limit.
It was time to announce Rap/Hip-Hop category at this year's American Music Awards. Coming out as the first winner from the genre was Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. They won the title Favorite Band, Duo or Group, beating heavy contenders such as Shop Boyz who launched their success through single 'Party Like a Rock Star' and teen heartthrobs group, Pretty Ricky.
Few minutes later, Rihanna who performed 'Umbrella' earlier that night, ascended the stage again to take Favorite Female 'R'n'B Artist. Her winning snubbed Beyonce Knowles' chance to earn a title that night. Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie also added the pressure for Knowles when she took Favorite Pop/Rock Female award soon after.
With Fergie's winning, the 35th annual show that was held at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater on November 18, 2007 officially ended. Due to "time reasons" not all category were announced during the show. Several other winners, as listed below, were revealed according to AMAs press release.
